- A man was stabbed by his wife and left fighting for his life
- This followed him walking on in her cheating with her lover
- In the wake of the Babes Wodumo saga, social media users expressed that the abuse of men should be recognised within society as well
Twitter user, Man’s Not Barry Roux (@AdvBarryRoux), shared a controversial tweet relating to abusive relationships.
He included the caption: “Men are abused everyday & cry in silent because when they cry out loud, they are called weak.”
The tweet included a screenshot of a Facebook post shared by Mojalefa Meshack Mafale, along with some pics.
The message revealed how Mafale walked in on his wife cheating with her lover.
The woman and her lover attacked and stabbed Mafale.
He was hospitalised and fighting for his life. To add insult to injury, he may be suffering from kidney failure as a result of the attack.
Photos revealed the man in bad shape as he lies in a hospital bed.
The tweet struck a chord with South Africans who feel that men are abused but that society doesn’t recognise this.
In the wake of the recent Babes Wodumo incident, some tweeps felt the timing of the tweet was slightly insensitive.
Briefly.co.za gathered the overwhelming sentiment is that incidents such as these will fall on deaf ears.
There were some that went against the grain and who believe that cowboys don't cry.
Twitter user, @Diegolicious10, said: “Men must be strong, that's weakness. It's gayish to cry for help.”
